Assessing the Global Response To Obama's Words

What lines got applause?

Thursday, June 04, 2009

President Obama called for a new beginning for the relationship between the U.S. and the Muslim world. How is the Arab world reacting: what did they want to hear about Afghanistan, Iraq, Israel, and women's rights? And what do they want to happen next? The Takeaway turns to Amir Moussa, the Secretary-General of the Arab League and former Egyptian foreign minister, Marcus Mabry, the international business editor for the New York Times, and Muna Shikaki, a correspondent for Al Arabiya, an Arabic news network.

Guests:

Marcus Mabry, Amir Moussa and Muna Shikaki

Hosted by:

I really enjoyed the coverage of President Obama's speach, but have to say I am amazed that you interupted it for a commercial, not station identification, a commercial. The irony of the transition to the spring fundraiser was delicious.
